Maui's first Target store is now open in Kahului

It's always an exciting time on Maui when a new big box retailer comes to town. This month we are celebrating the first Target store, amid lots of hoopla. The central Maui location is perfect for locals and visitors.

Target on Maui - open until 10 pm

The soft opening was Wednesday last week, and yes this eager consumer was there on the first day to check it all out. That's what you do when you've lived here for 35 years. It was just like going to the county fair, with all those happy people wandering around awestruck at so much shiny new retail space, and all those shelves stacked high with so many thing you didn't realize you needed. In addition to the usual household supplies and clothing, there's a pretty good food department with coolers for fresh items. I didn't notice a beer and wine section, but I might have missed it.

Starbucks and Pizza Hut have set up shop near the entrace so you can grab a bite before or after shopping.

Checking out was quite a trip on day one as it was like a conga line of bright red shopping carts snaking in and out of the cosmetic aisles because it was so long. But it moved along briskly and everyone was in a good mood and chatting with each other due to the first time experience.

What were the prices like? I noticed a lot of the items I buy elsewhere were priced competetively so I'll be back. I didn't really get a chance to thoroughly shop the whole store since I was with others and we had another appointment. How's that for a good excuse to go back, as if I need one.

Target on Maui has a pharmacy

This week marks the Grand Opening of the Target store and you can bet the parking lot will be full. You'll find them in the new Puunene Shopping Center which is across the street from Zippy's. The address is 100 Hookele St. Kahului. They are open from 8 am to 10 pm Monday through Saturday, and 8 am to 9 pm on Sundays.  Target Pharmacy phone: (808) 334-4021

Did I find everything I needed on my first visit to Target? No, but I'll be back.

You can find a home for sale in Kahului and Wailuku and be close to all the big box stores on Maui.

Georgie, glad you enjoyed your first trip to your new Target store.  They do have a nice assortment of things.

Thanks!  Well I like it and we've now made 2 trips there in one week. Lots more to explore when I go on my own.

When we finally got our new Ross Dress For Less here on Kauai it was crazy-busy for at least a week. No Target here yet or even rumored so I'll be stopping at your new one when I visit Maui.

Hi Georgie,

I guess Costco has some competition without a membership requirement now.

I cannot imagine life without Target and Kohl's. Those are my two favorite places to shop.
